26th June 2013: Rumours are flying that Kate Middleton and Prince William may have bent the truth about Kate's due date, in order to fool the press.
The Duchess, who's been expected by media worldwide to give birth around the 13 July, may actually have played a little trick on us!
Kate told reporters that she was expecting her little one in mid-July, and the generally accepted date was the 13th, after some close friends apparently let slip the date. But according to new reports, Kate and Wills' due date could be a whole 10 days earlier than we thought.
It seems the royal couple have taken a clever leaf out of Princess Diana's book, who tricked the press by announcing she was due to give birth to Prince William on her birthday, the 1 July, when in actual fact the little Prince arrived 10 days earlier, on 21 June.
Prince William attended the wedding of Melissa Percy and Tom van Straubenzee without Kate on the 22 June, as Kate chose to stay at home in case she went into early labour, so it seems as if the couple are expecting the baby any day now.
If the speculation is true that means that the royal bundle of joy could be arriving as early as 3 July, how exciting!
